Nuna Tavo vs Mixx – Features
Car Seat Compatible: Both the Nuna Tavo and Mixx strollers are car seat compatible. You can easily attach any of the Nuna infant car seats to the Nuna Tavo and Mixx strollers. But while the Nuna Tavo allows you to simply click in the car seat without any additional accessories, the Nuna Mixx requires an adapter that lets you attach the car seat to the stroller frame. The good news is that the car seat adapter is already included with the stroller. On the other hand, the car seat needs to be purchased separately for both the Nuna Tavo and Mixx.
Bassinet Stroller: While both strollers are car seat compatible, only the Nuna Mixx stroller is bassinet compatible. You can easily attach the Nuna infant bassinet to the Nuna Mixx stroller frame, transforming it into a stylish pram. Note: the bassinet also needs to be purchased separately.
The Nuna Tavo stroller unfortunately does NOT include a bassinet feature.
Newborn Stroller: Although both stroller seats cannot directly be used for newborns, the strollers can still easily be made compatible for newborns. By replacing the stroller seats with an infant car seat or a bassinet (the Nuna Mixx), you can safely carry your newborn aboard both strollers. Once your baby is old enough, you can easily switch to the stroller seat.
Convertible Stroller: In addition to being bassinet compatible, the Nuna Mixx also has a bonus feature which is that – it can be converted from a single to a double stroller! You can attach a second seat to the Nuna Mixx stroller frame and carry your twin baby or second baby aboard the stroller. This is great for growing families as you don’t have to purchase a new stroller when you’re expecting another baby. It also gives you even more options for riding the stroller!
Note, the second seat has to be purchased separately. Also, you can attach a second car seat or a second bassinet as well!
Unfortunately, the Nuna Tavo is not a convertible stroller. You can only carry a single kid aboard the stroller.
One-Hand Multi-Position Recline and Footrest: the seats for both strollers can be adjusted into multiple positions using just a single hand. Your baby can switch from sitting upright, to laying horizontally in a completely flat recline – it is especially great and convenient for taking naps.
In addition, each stroller has a footrest attached to the seats. The Nuna Mixx has a one-position footrest, and the Nuna Tavo footrest can be adjusted into multiple positions. While the one-position footrest gives your child room to rest their legs when sitting upright, the adjustable footrest is great for when your kid sits in a different position. And is especially great for when they lay back to take a nap.
5-Point Harness: in terms of safety, both strollers have a 5-point harness system that keeps your baby safely strapped into the stroller seat..
Reversible Stroller Seat: lastly, the Nuna Mixx stroller seat has an extra feature that allows you to adjust it to be either forward or backwards facing. Which gives you even more options for riding the stroller!
The Nuna Tavo unfortunately does not include this feature. The seat is fixed in a forward facing position.
Quick One-Step Fold: Each stroller has a one-step fold that allows you to fold up the stroller quickly and easily. The Nuna Tavo however, has the true one-hand fold that lets you fold up the stroller without having to free up both hands. While the Nuna Mixx requires you to use both hands.
The one-hand fold is always more convenient especially when you’re in a hurry or on-the-go. You don’t have to find room to set your baby down so you can free up both hands.
Adjustable Handlebar: the handlebars for both strollers can be adjusted to fit the height of the parent handling the stroller. This is especially great for tall and short parents, as it allows you to have the handlebar adjusted to your height or your partner’s.
Nuna Tavo vs Mixx – Wheels
Both Nuna Mixx and Tavo strollers have great quality all-terrain wheels that move nicely over all terrain, both smooth and rough. They also both have an all wheel shock absorbing suspension system that helps to provide a smooth and bump free ride.
Lastly, they both have a lockable swiveling front wheel that makes the stroller easy to maneuver and allows you round corners smoothly. Both strollers have great wheels compared to the average stroller. However, when comparing the two, I’d say the Nuna Mixx has nicer wheels and a smooth and easier drive.
Nuna Tavo vs Mixx – Weight & Capacity
Both strollers are not quite lightweight as they are above 20 lbs in weight. However, the Nuna Tavo is slightly lighter than the Nuna Mixx, making it the lighter option.
Nuna Tavo Weight: 24.3 lbs
Nuna Mixx Weight: 27 lbs
The Nuna Mixx is quite heavy at 27 lbs even for a full-size stroller. This could make it a bit harder and heavier for smaller parents to carry and maneuver. So if you’d prefer a more lightweight stroller, the Nuna Tavo is the better option to go for.
Both strollers are able to carry up to 50 lbs of child weight. You can carry older kids even up to 6 years old!

Nuna Tavo vs Mixx – Basket
The Nuna Tavo and Mixx strollers both have large rear-accessible baskets that give you enough room to carry your on-the-go items – diapers, bottles, toys, or snacks. You won’t always need to carry that extra bag with you when on the go.
Nuna Tavo vs Mixx – Canopy
If you’re looking for a nice large canopy with your stroller, then both strollers are there for you. They both have UPF50, sun-proof canopies that help protect your kid against harmful UV-rays. Apart from the UPF50 features, the canopies are both of high quality fabrics and great design with a lot of attention to detail. They don’t get wrinkly or look of low quality material like the average stroller.
Both the Nuna Tavo and Mixx provide you with 3 color options to choose from – Caviar, Granite, Aspen. This gives you a few options and allows you to pick a color that suits you more.
